Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from grd
Don't which is more fun. Faith and Buffy's antics or Holmes' clues and deductions. Maybe this is why he supposedly started taking drugs. Well done.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Rich
So, Holmes is off the beard the Watchers in their den (good choice for the Watchers' name, BTW). My guess is that they won't talk to him, but he'll deduce a few things anyway and may burgle the place to learn more. Meanwhile, the girls should be looking for Holmes. They also might break into the Council, looking for information, and might run into Holmes while doing so.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from Rich
Of course !! Find Sherlock Holmes and get him to help you. You just have to convince him that you're not insane, that time travel is possible, and that somewhere in London there's someone (who you can't identify or even describe) that has a machine that can do it. This could take a while.

Seriously, in spite of what I wrote above, I really like this idea, and I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Hey. If it was easy anyone could do it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from DianeCastle
Great last line for the chapter. I'm enjoying the story.

That said, Holmes ought to be finding a lot more clues. Maybe a handprint on the top of the wall that the Slayers jumped - a handprint that could not be there under normal circumstances. Bootprints made by shoes that do not exist in current-day London. Things like that, to accompany the Starbucks cup with lid. He ought to be able to make a lot of deductions from looking at the boot imprints (weight, height, stride, a really impossible running speed) and the extra-deep impressions from their leap up and their landing (phenomenal strength and jumping ability which is clearly beyond normal, abnormal strength and resilience from taking that landing without injury and running off). I'm sure he'll go nuts trying to analyze that vampire dust too. Good work on the 'exsanguination with almost no blood on the ground' problem: that's got to be indicative. And we all know: when you have eliminated the impossible...

So he has two girls with superhuman strength and speed who fight things that suck blood and turn to dust when killed. How far is Baker Street from the building of the Watcher's Council? :-)
Comments from author:
He hasn't found all the clues as yet. I am assuming a paved alley and a brick and concrete type wall that they leaped. also Buffy has demonstrated the ability to easily jump a very tall wall or fence without touching it and if paved on the other side there might be scuffs on the cobble stones but probably no clear footprints. I suspect that Holmes will enlist the aid of the Baker Street Irregulars in his search for clues and the identities and whereabouts of our heroines. I'm enjoying the story as I think of all the things that he would encounter that do not fit in to his world view as well as all the challenges Buffy and Faith will face. I suspect that they would not be too keen on coming to the notice of the Council as neither has had the best of dealings with them.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from MissE
Oh, this should be interesting. Sherlock is sure to spot the fact that Buffy and Faith were brought up differently to the women of his time. Their actions, mode of speech, all that, will mark them out to him.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from (Current Donor)MarcusRowland
I doubt that Holmes will be able to develop plastic cup lids (though that type of waxed paper cup goes back quite a long way, and would easily be doable with Victorian technology - assuming, of course, that they didn't have them, which I haven't checked), but that's a lovely example of how apparently trivial things could cause big changes.
Comments from author:
The paper cup dates back to the invention of the Dixie Cup in 1907 so this would be a little ahead of that. Also wax cups had a major issue with hot liquids. I've always had fun thinking what certain historical figures would think when presented with some modern item that we think nothing of but to them would me almost miraculous.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Xovervore
So it seems that a side-effect from the demon's death sent them to the past, during which they passed the time traveller on his way to the distant future. Which means that they have to wait for him to get back with his machine and also find out about its existence - which no doubt will be up to Sherlock to do. Meanwhile they can get up to a lot of mischief and fun!

Edit on 3rd July - so Chapter 3 reveals he was actually heading in same direction - backwards in time to his home year (or something near it).
Comments from author:
When I started this I had just watched Sherlock Holmes on Netflix after watching a Buffy episode earlier so I knew I wanted them to get together just had no idea how. My Muse was pulling her hair out until I happened upon the fact that The Time Machine came out during Holmes' time period. My Muse danced a little jig.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
I'm pleased to see from a review response below that you are using the *definitive* Sherlock Holmes - Jeremy Brett - as your Holmes model. Very good. :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Tabercil
To borrow a phrase from another classic English author, "curiouser and curiouser". Oh please do continue... it'll be interesting to see how Sherlock and the era of Queen Victoria survive our Slaysome twosome. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)MarcusRowland
Interesting - I wonder how badly they'll mess up the time line e.g. "prophetic" warnings about 9-11...
Comments from author:
So many possibilities. I have one in mind but may add some others as the story develops.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Xovervore
Ha, so our heroines have somehow got a hold of or access to H.G.Wells's time machine. They could create some chaos with the timeline of Sherlock Holmes's world, starting with their temporal littering (Starbucks cup)! I like time travel stories and am eager to see how this develops - slayers versus Holmes's keen intellect.
Comments from author:
I wouldn't be surprised to find that the Council had the time machine hidden deep in one of their vaults but that would be too easy.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from MissE
[snicker] Starbucks! The great icon of the late 20th century left behind to confound the amazing Mr Holmes ;)

Interesting beginning.
